shooting and killing a college basketball coach and her fiance in a parking garage sunday night. san diego police say someone matching dorner's description tied up an 81-year-old man wednesday night and then tried and failed to steal his yacht. they say dorner's lapd badge and id were found near the san diego airport this morning. his manifesto actually said that he had a sniper rifle and explosives saying he was prepared to die. the truck found in big bear will be taken away by investigators in san bernardino county and processed. no sign of dorner. back to you. >> edward, what are his fellow officers or coworkers saying about this? did they have any clue that this was someone who could potentially be dangerous? >> reporter: well, actually i haven't talked to any officers who knew him. his neighbors say this is a complete surprise.
6:01pm
they had no idea. they have always known his as a nice gentle man. the coworkers you could just see a look of concern and just frightened. they didn't know. the lapd police chief here says that anybody in a police uniform is a target. those two officers in san bernardino were just stopped at a stop light when he ambushed them. so there's a look of concern on officers from riverside to here in los angeles. >> thank you, edward lawrence. so far there's no sign of dorner is headed to the bay area but authorities aren't taking any chances. how police are preparing for a worst-case scenario, that story a little later in this newscast. new at 6:00, police are beefing up patrols in palo alto tonight after a girl says a stranger tried to kidnap her. police just released this sketch of the suspect. investigators say he tried to grab the 11-year-old girl's arm while she was riding her bike on emerson street monday night. she got away and police are

looking for the suspect. in the case of kevin collins who disappeared nearly 30 years ago, san francisco police have finally identified a person of interest and today kpix 5 reporter da lin spoke to kevin's mother and gets her reaction to why it took police so long to name a suspect. >> over the years i have always said. i don't know who to be angry at. i don't know who. >> reporter: she now knows who to be angry at. she believes this man kidnapped and killed her son kevin collins 29 years ago. >> we might not get the answers and we don't have a burial for kevin. >> reporter: ann doesn't recognize the man but saying looking at his mugshot brings back all the pain and emotions of losing 10-year-old kevin who was last seen leaving basketball practice at a san francisco school. >> it's appointing he got away with this all these years. >> reporter: police say the man had a history of kidnapping and
6:03pm
sexual assaults against boys. and he lived near where kevin disappeared in 1984. detectives say the main reason why it took them so long to connect the dots on this man was because he had five different identities. san francisco police say he died of natural causes five years ago. >> i'm not thrilled he died without being brought to justice. but at the same time, i am happy that our family doesn't have to go through a trial, doesn't have to hear gritty details. >> reporter: the collins family said at their hayward home today they hope cold case detectives will keep digging for more information. in fact, detectives are asking people who had talked to him back in '84 to call them. >> i do want a resolution. i want to know what happened to him and where he is. and this may be as much as we know and if it is, i have to accept that it's more than we knew last month. >> reporter: in hayward, da

6:06pm
on the embarcadero. this is not from today's rain. we only saw .1" here in san francisco. this was caused from today's king tides. and the next king tide will occur tomorrow morning at 9:33 a.m. it will measure 6.8 feet so you will want to expect a little bit of minor flooding right here on the embarcadero. okay. how much rain fell within the bay area today alone? let's take a look. it looks like so far in richmond .2" of rain. san francisco only .1." these are very anemic measurements. and it looks like for the most part, it doesn't help as far as our rainfall totals are concerned. let's look at the deficit because right now in san francisco, we are way below normal as far as the statistics are concerned. we are nearly 5.5" below normal and san jose nearly 3." the same story in san jose. what needs to be done? more rain. we have six more weeks of
6:07pm
winter weather here in the bay area before spring. doesn't look like we'll see a major weather pattern change. it all needs to be seen. we'll stay on top of it with mobile weather right here on the embarcadero, roberta gonzales reporting for kpix 5. >> thank you. you can track the rain anytime with our live high-def doppler radar. that's on our cbssf.com/weather website. tonight we know the name of the woman killed in this crash in east oakland. police say 24-year-old car linda faust mccandless was driving a stolen car when she crashed into another car on foothill boulevard monday. she died at the scene. the other driver had minor injuries. in san jose fire investigators are trying to figure out the source of this house fire. the flames torched the home on mckendry street by dana avenue early this morning. no one was hurt. customs agents found 2300 rounds of ammunition smuggled in cars at the port of oakland.

6:09pm
before we can begin to restore services that have been cut over the last decade. >> reporter: neighbors gave us an idea what they are looking for from their city's leader. >> more youth outreach services for kids for intersection, more service for people who are homeless, who are on drugs, you know, instead of just putting them in jail. >> reporter: there is talk the mayor could campaign for a citywide tax increase to support city services. a new poll released says the majority of residents are okay with a one quarter percent increase. >> i'm grateful for the support that i have gotten from the public and that we have for the possibility of a tax increase. i think it means we're on the right track. >> if it is for the city's progress, you know, why not? you know? anything for the good of the people i think that's welcome. >> reporter: some opponents say it's not that simple. >> for a city tax to pass, there needs to be broad community support. and this mayor's leadership has been extraordinarily divisive. what he needs to do is build some bridges before we can get a tax passed. >> reporter: the mayor will

6:13pm
police tellies -- tellies elissa harrington tell kpix 5 reporter elissa harrington the attack is random. >> reporter: three family members were shot during a home invasion that police think was random. he says his cous, wasn't there at the time. [ indiscernible ] [ heavy accent ] >> they leave about 2:00 in the morning. >> reporter: inside, his 62- year-old wife and two adult children. they were asleep when around 3:40 a.m., two gunmen kicked in the front door. >> the very first person that confronts the suspect was the female in her early 20s. she saw these unknown individuals inside her home. she retreated into her home and the two suspects chased her into the home and fired at her. >> reporter: she shieldled herself with a pillow and was hit in the hand. her brother in his 20s came out next shot in the face. their mother shot in the hip. the suspects fled. they are both armed and are on
6:14pm
the loose. >> obviously, shaken up. they are still over there at the hospital. >> reporter: the thought of a random attack also has neighbors rattled saying this area is usually quiet and that family friendly. >> i'm going to definitely make sure everything, windows, doors, are locked and secure for sure now. >> they're nice people. they're not like -- i never seen any problems. it's not loud over there at their house at all. they're all working all the time. >> we're very disturbed and doing everything we can to try to determine what exactly happened and to bring those people to justice. >> reporter: the three victims are at the hospital recovering from their injuries. police do not have a good description of the suspects except that they were wearing hoodies at the time. in vallejo, elissa harrington, kpix 5. a camera caught a clear image of a home burglar in oakland. police released a picture of a suspect right after he committed the crime in the trestle glen area on saturday. it's unclear what was taken from the home. new at 6:00, have you ever
6:15pm
checked your work email from home? or answered an off-hours call from the office? probably. did you expect to be paid for it? well, probably not. but kpix 5 reporter john ramos tells us times are changing. >> reporter: we live connected lives. talking, texting, e-mailing, every thought or question that comes to us. but when that comes from the office, somebody was bound to say, enough already. >> that is something that needs to be paid for. >> reporter: an attorney in chicago has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a police sergeant who says he should be paid overtime for answering calls and e-mails on his time off. the officer says he is required to stay in contact when off duty, a situation shared by many nonsalaried employees here in the bay area, as well. >> i mean, i think it's part of the job description. but i think job descriptions have to change as technology is adapted. >> you think people deserve to be paid for answering a telephone call? >> yes. i mean, depending on the length
6:16pm
of the call. >> if it's a five minute interruption, i think it would be foolhardy of an employee to expect to have overtime pay. >> reporter: steven gorski practices employment law and says that technology advances, the courts will probably establish a reasonable standard for how much the office can contact people on their off hours without paying them but a judge has allowed other officers to join in the chicago lawsuit and that could end up costing the city millions of dollars in back pay. what would the ramifications be for this to anybody who wants to pick up the phone and call their employee on the day off? >> i think they will think twice. before they hire them they will give a full description. this is your job description. you will be paid 9 to 5 when you come in but you will be expected to answer a brief phone call. >> reporter: but there could be an upside for employees. >> probably wouldn't get bothered at home on the weekends. >> is that good? >> possibly. i mean, depends on your job. >> reporter: the lawsuit has a
6:17pm
long way to go but a large judgment could convince employers to take the same advice we give to drivers, namely it can wait. in san francisco, john ramos, kpix 5 >> you can check the weather from home. >> oh. >> you don't need a smartphone. just sit back. >> cbssf.com or right here right now. >> right now. >> we're here. there's something to talk about, too. talking about sunshine, sunshine, dry, dry, dry. not the case this evening. yes, it was clear for much of the afternoon. look at the radar. this is about as active as it's been since christmas day. kpix 5 high-def doppler radar showing heavier showers now basically surrounding the city of petaluma. i have zoomed in on you because you have rain just to your north and south and in a matter of about five minutes, you will see a steady soaking rain along highway 101 north to rohnert park. we're zooming out wide. we have activity north and west. scattered showers will be around until mid-morning
6:18pm
tomorrow. peek outside beautiful bay lights. roberta was talking about that. highs today not that mild. oakland hit 59. redwood city 58. napa you hit 57. concord and livermore only 55 despite that afternoon sunshine and in the city it only hit 54 degrees. the setup in the atmosphere is this. we had our front move through this morning. you got a little bit of morning rainfall. then we got the clearing. now there's an upper-level area of low pressure. see the counterclockwise swirl at the oregon california border? that's heading in our direction. the shower activity will increase and coverage will increase. we likely will see showers around until about mid-morning to lunchtime tomorrow. so showers through the morning commute. enjoy no, sir showers because after that, i -- enjoy those showers because after that i can't find rain in the forecast for a week and a half. high pressure will stay anchored to our west. another long dry stretch begins tomorrow. so the rain is out of here by lunchtime tomorrow. the weekend will be sunny, chilly mornings, lows near freezing away from the water. highs tomorrow chilly. san jose the average of 63, tomorrow only 54 for you. scattered showers in the
6:19pm
morning for vallejo, 53. san rafael tomorrow 54 degrees. after tomorrow morning, it's all about the sunshine again. upper 50s over the weekend, low 60s next week. i'll tell you what, we could use a lot more rain than one night. let's hope that mother nature squeezes out this washcloth a little bit extra. after this another week and a half before we see rain again. this has been extraordinarily odd winter. >> thank you. not far from liquor stores and laundromats the bay area house that sold for a cool $10 million.
6:20pm

(holds up phone) fruit ninja!!! emergency roadside assistance. just a click away with the geico mobile app. housing market, it's a shocker. a home in san francisco's mission district just went for a teeper than the even in the bay area's red- hot housing market it's shocking. a home in the mission just went for a price even steeper than the famous hill that it sits on. kpix 5 reporter mike sugerman is there and okay, mike, we know how much. but why?! >> reporter: i can't tell you either. $10million!
6:22pm
this house is quite unremarkable from outside. $10million! the highest price ever sold around here is 5. that's double. $10million! and wait until you find out who they think bought it. >> is this yours? >> reporter: comedian chris garcia lives in the mission district. >> liquor store and laundromat. do you know where that is? >> reporter: it's funny because pretty much every corner has a liquor store and laundromat. >> doesn't make any sense. >> it starts making sense, condor giving birth to an aztec calendar? >> reporter: now there's something that actually doesn't fit in. ad 10 million house. >> it's astounding there would be a house that's $10 million. >> reporter: this insurance broker can't find another house going for more than $3 million in the neighborhood. somebody really wanted this house.
6:23pm
it could be quite a gamble. at clooney's where old-timers have been drinking in this spot for more than 45 years, they are flabbergasted. this house is in the liberty heights neighborhood on top of what's called heart attack hill, it's so steep. a rather unremarkable place from the outside built in 1928, 5500 square feet inside. it is being taken down to the studs and totally refurbished. 14 rooms, four bedrooms. >> silicon valley. >> reporter: that's the bartender's guess and everyone else's. >> we saw everything changed dramatically the dot-com go do dot-bomb. >> reporter: with trendty hipsters and plumbing shops and homeless and, of course, in the old days -- >> it was more irish. it was working class blue collar class. and almost all of them are gone now that were around here.
6:24pm
>> reporter: and none of them would believe a house sold for $10 million. the whole block might have brought that in back in the day. so the word is we can't make this certain but all indications are that it's mark zuckerberg who bought this house. he is the ceo of facebook. he has a lot of friends. and apparently a lot of cash. >> just needs a little place in the city. >> reporter: well, really, he wants to go, you know, to the deli and [ indiscernible ] on dolores and he can walk in and say i want the house. here's 10 million. >> no problem. >> okay. >> to the rest of us, the hill wouldn't give us a heart attack, just the price would. >> reporter: absolutely. [ laughter ] >> a million dollars! >> crazy stuff. maybe you will get a tour after it's all done. >> reporter: i doubt it. >> i doubt it, too. sorry. okay. take care. [ laughter ] coming up in our next half hour, the bay area reaction to the manhunt down south. >> this is pretty much a police
6:25pm
officer's worst nightmare. >> the immediate orders to officers here in response to the killing spree. >> i'm obviously fearing for my safety to a certain level. >> a bay area man receives a death threat because of the business he owns. >> you see them cutting through traffic right between cars. tonight the unusual move in response to lane splitting by motorcyclists now all they need is a chance. i've been passed over so many times. an r: america's best companies are hiring. the person who will be getting a job is...

6:27pm
6:28pm
expanding to nevada, arizona and new mexico. but the main focus right now, is a massive hunt for an ex- cop on a killing rampage is expanding to nevada, arizona and new mexico but the main focus now is in southern california near big bear lake. late this afternoon, a truck belonging to the suspect christopher dorner was found at the bear mountain ski area east of los angeles. it had been set on fire. the los angeles county sheriff's office says dorner has not been found and a door- to-door search is under way. dorner is suspected of killing three people including a police officer. a manifesto believed posted by dorner says, he wants to wage war on law enforcement. there's no indication dorner is
6:29pm
headed to the bay area. but kpix 5 reporter linda yee shows us how bay area law enforcement is not taking any chances. >> reporter: they're not. every officer throughout california has gotten that blue alert, be on the lookout because every cop is a potential target. the blue alert is on highway signs warning police an officer has already been shot and killed. >> this guy is a walking critical incident. >> reporter: san francisco police chief greg suhr says all patrol officers are on notice. be on the lookout for former lapd officer christopher dorner and everyone is under orders to follow specific protocol if they spot him. >> what we did first thing this morning was remade sure that his picture was in every, single stationhouse, photocopied to the point where it's in every, single police car and should the officer see him, we're to establish a perimeter, not to even approach him. >> reporter: the case is specially tough for cops who may have to confront a former officer who has crossed the line.
6:30pm
>> to do something like that and to target police officers, him himself being a police officer at one time, it's just --it's terrible. >> reporter: because dorner is a former cop, he's that much more dangerous to the officers hunting him down. >> this is pretty much a police officer's worst nightmare because, i mean, he --he knows what we do --again, he knows how we move. he knows how we train. he knows what we do. and he's already said that he is not afraid to die. so we're committed to keep this city safe. >> reporter: now, dorner not only has police tactical knowledge. because he is a former police officer and former military, he has access to high-powered weapons. and tonight, they believe that he is heavily armed. reporting live in san francisco, linda yee, kpix 5. a bay area businessman is feeling the heat for opening a gun store in los gatos. a lot of people are going to templar sports on university avenue. but kpix 5 reporter len ramirez
6:31pm
says the owner is also getting death threats. things were very emotional here in los gatos when this gun store opened in this town. this town is not used to seeing stores like that and people didn't want to see this one open. >> we have tried to work with the community with the town, and go through this process with the town meetings, and unfortunately, someone has done this unlawful behavior now. >> reporter: this los gatos gun store owner robert chang is talking about a death threat he received at his home on tuesday. >> it's surprising to me. obviously, i am fearing for my safety as a group of individual or individuals went through the process to find where i live and take that extra step to make a threat. >> reporter: the threat came in the middle of an emotional debate about guns and gun sales in the town of los gatos prompted by the opening of chang's store templar sport on university avenue. today the officer was getting a lot of foot traffic, but it's been the site of protests from residents. what did you think when you first heard about this gun store? >> i didn't like it. >> reporter: she was not a protestor but is opposed to it.
6:32pm
>> we definitely should not be selling more guns. >> definitely unusual for us i think and i think maybe that's why people are having such a difficult time with it. >> regardless of whether or not you open up a gun store, i think it's in poor taste considering the timing. >> reporter: the store did open just weeks after the newtown school shooting and sells assault style rifles. he denies his business was trying to cash in on a spike in gun sales over fears of stricter regulations. >> of course not. you know, we started this process many months ago. as businessmen we were sensitive to what was going on but also had to make a business decision. it's a lawfully operating business. >> reporter: the los gatos town council has scheduled another public hearing to consider whether or not it can further regulate the gun store or type of firearms it sells. in los gatos, len ramirez, cbs 5. they are planning to postpone the hearing. new tonight, the chp is out
6:33pm
with new rules on lane splitting. now we have all seen this. it's when motorcyclists weave their way through traffic squeezing between cars. it's always been legal in california. that's not going to change. but kpix 5 reporter don ford says now there are guidelines on how to do it safely. >> reporter: you see it all the time motorcycles passing between slow-moving cars called lane splitting. marty has been driving california freeways for 50 years and he loves it. >> there's times where it's a dead stop and so if you are able to split the lanes you pick up 5, 10 minutes on the ride to work. >> reporter: lane splitting is legal in california. although some say it's an unsafe practice. now the chp is setting down the rules for motorcycle riders to follow when the traffic is crawling. the rules of the road only split lanes when the traffic is under 30 miles an hour.
6:34pm
do not pass more than 10 miles an hour faster than the flow of traffic. and avoid splitting between buses and rvs. kpix 5 staffer jared mcpete commutes daily in bumper-to- bumper traffic. >> anybody who argues with them probably shouldn't be riding a bike. >> reporter: he says he pays extreme attention to the cars. if you don't he says accidents happen quickly. in a blink, the white van pulls into the motorcycle. but marty says most bike accidents are not caused by lane splitting. most are caused by speeding. >> riders obey the rules and drivers to that that's the rules, then everybody is happy. >> reporter: in the east bay, don ford, kpix 5. disfigured for the rest of her life. >> a grooming turns in a nightmare. the troubling mistake at a popular pet retailer and what
6:35pm
we found when we dug in the company's history. >> and details of the huge party plan right before the new bay bridge span opens to traffic. well, well, well. growing up, we didn't have u-verse. we couldn't record four shows at the same time. in my day, you were lucky if you could record two shows. and if mom was recording her dumb show and dad was recording his dumb show then, by george, that's all we watched. and we liked it! today's kids got it so good.

but one bay area consumer got more than she bargained for when she took her dog to a pet owners spend lots of money grooming pets but one bay area consumer got more than she bargained for when she took her dog to a local petsmart. >> reporter: kpix 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts -- as kpix 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts explains, the pooch has never been the same. >> sickening. >> reporter: vanessa still reeling over little khloe's grooming nightmare. >> it just upsets me every time i see her. it's an obvious thing. she is disfigured for the rest of her life. >> reporter: when she was brought in for a routine groom, one of dozens at the san jose petsmart over the past five years, she assumed the dog was in good hands. >> s of called a few hours
6:38pm
later and informed that she was cut. the groomer let me know that the bleeding had stopped. she was with the veterinarian. again, she said it was just like a cut. so i'm assuming a little nick. >> reporter: that little nick was a big chop. the groomer responsible said she slipped with the scissor when khloe turned her head. she lost a quarter of her ear and the groomer responsible is still working. petsmart said it investigated the incident and responded appropriatedly. it says our goal is for all pets to be kept safe and healthy. >> you think that taking your pet to a large chain like this, that you're safe that they have made the proper investments in their employees and the groomers. i know this is probably not the first incident that has happened with petsmart. >> reporter: last year the southern california family sued the retailer after their four- month-old english bulldog rita died. >> when they got there, the groomer was like all nonchalant
6:39pm
